Interim Series
During a long bout with the consequences of turpentine poisoning, the artist turned to acrylics and relearned to paint. She studied with John Feeney in Vasse, Western Australia, who introduced her to acrylic techniques which are different from oils because acrylics dry rapidly and are water based. She first painted numerous slot canyons, and miscellaneous dreams and images.

On a spiritual quest to the monastery at Pearblossom, CA. the artist wandered through the garden and came upon the "He is risen" station of the cross, a figure with upraised arms. She followed the arms with her eyes and was startled by the sight of a silver cross moving slowly across the sky, so she lay on the ground to witness. Dozens of crosses sailed overhead, one right after another, and she lay there in ecstasy, totally mesmerized and weeping. About 2 hours later, the pageant stopped, she got up and danced in a huge circle. These two paintings are samples of what she produced in the ensuing weeks. The truth about the crosses was that they were gliders being towed by the local gliding club pursuing their regularly scheduled meeting.
